Knock Knock is a newly opened cafe in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. Located on the corner of Queen St and Little Bourke Street – you cannot miss this cute shabby-chic colourful cafe. You walk in and you feel like you have been transported into a completely different world – you are surrounded by colourful tables, little cubby houses which have tables hidden inside and completed with fake grass.
Inside has old school decor, such as mismatched chairs and tables which give a funky edgy feel. Coffees are creamy and have a rich nutty flavour – soo soo delicious. There is olden day style sugar bowls complete with little antique teaspoons which make you feel like you are at your very own tea party. A doily completes the look.
Knock Knock is open daily for Breakfast and Lunch as well as for Late night / After Work drinks on Friday. Definitely check this place out – I know I will be back to try out their food!

Pearl Oyster is a bit of a hidden gem located in Thornbury and run by Philip Smiley with his wife Angella. It has a vintage/retro feel about it and comes complete with old school style cushion chairs. The staff are friendly and welcoming and some even dress in the 50s or 60s glam! Fantastic! There is a courtyard area out the back where you can enjoy the sunshine and dance away to the up-beat and very danceable tunes.
When it comes to food, Pearl Oyster only sources fresh produce products and I think has a menu that is fantastic as it caters for one and all. There are options for the vegetarians, vegan and gluten-free people. The food is simple but everything is made from scratch and tastes delicious. You can tell that a lot of love went into making the food. There are also salad rolls and baguettes for lunch. Coffee is sourced from Supreme’s Origin Blend and is yet another reason to love this place!
This place is here to stay and is a neighbourhood favourite! Definitely check it out – you are sure to love it =)
